New Mexico or Southern Italy?

Look at this bell tower, sure looks like some that I remember from New Mexico. Perhaps a Santa Fe or Taos style with the stucco and soft curves. However, we found this on the chiesa madre in Rocca Imperiale, Calabria.
The chiesa madre
The church and lower tower of this hill town are typical stone but this unique top makes for an interesting contrast.

Funny you should post this. There were a couple of churches in Ascoli that I thought had a Spanish Mission look to them.
